There is undoubtedly a clear nexus between online piracy and malware distribution.

These malware infections can lead to a range of disastrous outcomes, including data breaches, identity theft, and fraud. Understanding the relationship between online piracy, malware, and cybercrimes is crucial in developing effective strategies to combat online piracy and protect against cybercrimes.
